From acclaimed writer Peter Bowker comes this powerful retelling of Emily Bronte's haunting novel, thrillingly brought to the screen by director Coky Giedroyc.
The story opens in the present with Heathcliff (Tom Hardy) tormented by memories of his soulmate Cathy (Charlotte Riley) and then flashes back to Mr Earnshaw (Kevin R. McNally) bringing Heathcliff to Wuthering Heights as a young boy. Cathy and Heathcliff become inseparable, much to the resentment of Cathy's brother, Hindley.
Years later Cathy is torn between succumbing to her love for Heathcliff or choosing a life of comfort and wealth with Edgar Linton. Cathy turns to loyal maidservant Nelly for advice when she realises that she cannot bear the thought of ever being separated from Heathcliff...
This is by far the best version of Wuthering Heights I have seen. The characters drew you in and Tom Hardy played the perfect role - he must have as he now gone on to star in some of the best movies of the past 3 years. One of my all time favourites.
Wuthering Heights. Tom Hardy can be such a chameleon. I saw this on TV ages ago and didn’t realise that it was him until I had bought the DVD. Charlotte Riley’s northern accent works perfectly as Cathy. A decent production that changed some book things. eg. they did have sex. It always made sense to me that they might have.
Great supporting cast too, with Andrew Lincoln as Edgar.
A great production of the classic English novel. The sets are great, the photography beautiful and the acting spot on.
wuthering heights was in my opinion a good movie that I thought was well written with a well thought out story line and a believable plot.The level of acting in this movie was of a good standard with all lines delivered in a well timed manner and it was this and the story lines as well as the interesting characters which made this movie enjoyable to watch.
If you enjoy a well made movie I think you will enjoy this movie and as such is recommended by me.
